, four more years in the white house locked in, president obama prepares to head back to washington, where a hard fought campaign pales in comparison to the challenges that lie ahead. the nation is drawing closer and closer to the fiscal cliff. hello and good to see you here on this day after election day. i'm brooke baldwin at the cnn world headquarters in atlanta. >> i'm celebrating the day after. john king in washington. hey, brooke. >> good to see you. >> it is good to see you. talk on capitol hill is turning to compromise immediately after the election. listen here, the senate majority leader democrat harry reid. >> it is better to dance than to fight. it is better to work together. everything doesn't -- >> see what the house speaker john boehner has to say. he speaks live next hour. meantime, the biggest battleground still hangs in the balance, the election is not yet over in florida. the nation's largest swing state too close to call. oh, yes, brooke, they're still counting the absentee ballots. >> we'll go there. also happening right now, the market. we have to look at this,
with wolf blitzer in washington. hey, wolf. >>> brooke, thanks very much. happening now, the president of the united states is on his way back to washington right now for four more years in the white house. you're going to see his return to the white house during this program. also, republicans still control the house of representatives. will the president find anymore cooperation in his second term than during his first? and after passage of an historic ballot question, how soon will it be until people in colorado can light up a marijuana cigarette legally? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> right now president obama's aboard air force one. he's heading east from chicago. he's already reaching out to congressional leaders trying to set the agenda for his second term in office. across the country today americans awoke to banner headlines from re-elected in the president's hometown "chicago tribune" to "obama wins in his adopted city" "the washington post." the "new york times" proclaimed it's obama's night while "los angeles times" told readers it's obama again. even
and spending cuts. jill doherty is in our washington bureau. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> jill, both sides have said they are optimistic about a deal here. they're also not budging on some key issues. >> yeah, i mean, there is some room around the edges, but essentially, and this is the the opening gambit, of course. they're both talking about taxes. the president saying -- and revenue. the president saying that he wants more revenue from the wealthiest americans and the republicans and especially mitch mcconnell, who's the senate minority leader, he's taking a tougher stand than even boehner. let's listen to both of those positions. >> let's be clear. an opening bid of $1.6 trillion in new taxes just isn't serious. it's more than simpson/bowles or any other bipartisan commission has called for. it's been unanimously rejected in the house and senate. it's twice as much as the white house agreed to last summer during the debt ceiling talks, and looked at in the context of the spending cuts yet to be implemented, it amounts to about 20 cents in cuts for every new dollar in tax hi
there could be charges brought against her, but we're told she hired an attorney in washington, and i reached out several times to him today. haven't heard back yet. >> what do we know about the fbi agent that sent kelly shirtless pictures of himself? >> a u.s. official confirms the agent in question did send shirtless photos of himself to kelly, which opens up a host of questions. they also said that happened before this case ever began. we already know this was the agent kelly took her original concerns to when she received the e-mails she felt were threatening. an official we spoke with said this agent never worked the case, but passed on the information to special agents in another department, the cyber unit. it was that department that took up the investigation that eventually led to the affair between broadwell and general petraeus. >> this agent also who has not been identified, suzanne, who allegedly went to this republican member of congress from washington state, dave reichert, he then went to house minority leader, majority leader eric cantor who went to justice department and fbi
the sampling era. another new national poll. this one is from abc and the "washington post," gives obama a one-point lead. nbc also finds romney's nationalability at 53% to obama's 54%. you need to wear a warm jacket and gloves if you plan to take part in early voting here in ohio. at some polling places, the lines were as far as the eye can see. i've never seen anything like this as voters waited to take part in early voting. i went out to check out one of the polling places here in columbus. this is the end of the line here in franklin county where they're allowed to vote 1:00 to 5:00 today. it circles all wait around here. there are a couple circles. i hope you guys aren't getting dizzy. then it's going to snake around all the way through the parking lot, another circle and all the way through. one of the guys we've been trying to talk to here is mark. mark, how long have you been in line? >> oh, we just got in line. we have no idea how long this will take. >> when you saw that line, what did you think? >> i thought it ended here at the start of the building until a woman was screaming, end
. >>> welcome back, everybody. you're watching our special coverage of the election live from washington, d.c. this morning. with less than 24 hours to go, the candidates are focusing on the biggest prizes. those elusive swing states. right now, cnn has pennsylvania lean obama but both campaigns are fighting for the key stone state. today president obama is deploying bill clinton there, for four campaign stops. just one day after mitt romney took the state in pennsylvania, the theme from "rocky." pat toomey is a republican senator from pennsylvania. he campaigned with both romney and paul ryan this weekend. he joins us this morning. nice to see you, sir. thanks for talking with us. >> good morning, thanks for having me. >> appreciate that. we've heard sort of mixed messages on the state of pennsylvania. so lay it out for me. listen to republicans, they say pennsylvania is definitely in play. if you talk to the democrats, david plouffe said it's a sign of desperation to talk about pennsylvania. let me play for you what he said and then we'll answer that on the other side. >> we have a great
of representatives before leaving to become the head of the woodrow wilson center for scholars here in washington. suzanne kelly, thanks very much. just a while ago the white house released this written statement from president obama. let me read from part of it "by any measure david petraeus has made our nation safer and stronger. today, i accepted his resignation as director of the central intelligence agency and i am completely confidence that the cia will continue to thrive and carry. let's talk a little more about what's going on, the breaking news. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is standing by. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr is standing by. and our chief political analyst gloria borger is standing by. gloria, let me start with you. you just spoke with some people up on the hill. what are they saying? >> i just spoke with diane finestein. she calls this a tragic story for a human being. she says people may start saying he's a scapegoat for benghazi and the controversy in benghazi. she says that is absolutely false. she said i know what the personal story is here
election express bus. i'm also joined by john king in washington, d.c. the electoral college map, how does it add up right now? >> when you talk to the two campaigns, it's as if even though it's one country, they live in parallel universes. both saying they will win tomorrow. the president is ahead in most of the key battleground states. they are down confidence in the obama campaign and don't get too much dispute out of the romney campaign that they will win the state of nevada. then they come to the midwest where you are. they are most confident in the midwest they will carry again. i know republicans watching are saying they'll prove you wrong. they're confident about the state of iowa. that would get the president to 259. takes 270 win. when you ask them about these battleground states, they say they're most confidence about ohio, where you are. the president took that game over. no republicans won the white house without it, but say they're wrong about it. keep it a toss-up. if this happens, if the president won novembevada, iowa wisconsin, could romney get to 270? yes, barely. give f

the truth, the facts. tonight the focus on what played out in washington today. two foes back at it again. senator mccain has maintained either white house negligence or a cover up. he would try to block any effort to promote ms. rice to secretary of state should hillary clinton resign. >> if senator mccain and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the un ambassador, who had nothing to do with agabenghazi and was mak a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to go after her reputation is outrageous. >> senator mccain heard that remark and took to the floor of the sen sat to respond. mr. president, four brave americans died. it has now been eight weeks and the american people have received nothing but contradick tri statements from all levels of our government. this administration has either been guilty of incompetence or engaged in a cover up neither of which is acceptable to the american people. >> there are still serious unanswered questions about the timeline of events. r
to these attacks? >> well, first of all, assessments from the ground apparently were not getting back to washington, were not getting high enough. that compound was under surveillance by the local services. benghazi itself is a jungle. all sorts of islamic groups. somebody should have raised the red flag early on and either fortified that consulate or simply closed it. somebody made a mistake. i don't know who that was, whether it was the state department or the cia or the combination of the two. but they probably, in the loit of today, they should have pu pulled out a long time ago and run all these operations -- >> just going on to topic number two, did the obama administration try to mislead us as to the nature of the attack? we all heard what susan rice said. republicans say she tried to pin this all on that terrible video that came out, that anti-muslim video, when she knew at the time it was something more. you've heard all the rumors flying around. what do you think? >> well, first of all, susan rice -- maybe she was misinformed. maybe she's getting unfairly blamed. maybe the cia sent a bad
this morning. she's in our washington, d.c. bureau. good morning, jill. >> hello, soledad. well, this is it. both sides are going to be there. they're looking at the tone. they're looking at the president, what kind of tone will he set? you have to say that they're coming in both sides with their essential positions intact. all, both sides are saying that there is some room for a compromise. so, the essential thing is how do you compromise? if you look at the positions, let's say, of the republicans, and it's most strongly, as i say, relayed by senator mitch mcconnell, he does not, and they do not, want any tax increases. so let's listen to him first. >> and let's be clear, an opening bid of $1.6 trillion of new taxes just isn't serious. it's more than simpson-bowles or any other bipartisan commission has called for. it's been unanimously rejected in the house and senate, it's twice as much as the white house seemed ready to agree to during last summer's debt ceiling talks and look at it in the context of the spending cuts that are yet to be enacted from the president's other proposal, it a
in washington, education reform seems to be more likely to get bipartisan cooperation. but the president can do quite a bit using his executive authority to achieve some changes in energy policy on his own. you mentioned a foreign trip that is right. the president and the white house have announced he will be going in about ten days overseas. he will visit cambodia and thailand and myanmar where he will visit with the now freed leader aun san su kyi. >> he had a phone call yesterday with the republican leadership with john boehner, the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. is he planning on sitting down with those two republican leaders any time soon? is the white house saying? >> reporter: there's nothing announced for a leaders meeting so far. but i am certain, wolf, that that will be coming because there's such important negotiations ahead. i'm told that the president's conversation with speaker boehner was courteous, it was brief. and i'm told that they also discussed the importance of keeping their public statements vague or general enough so that they leave themselves enough private n
? >> yeah, you know, it's washington, isn't it. i mean, you know, the theory, what petraeus is expected to talk about is he had his talking points. he got them declassified, approved to go out there in public. when ambassador rice started talking from her talking points, this included other information that wasn't exactly what the cia thought might be really going on. i think some members of capitol hill have brought it down to this point, was the obama administration incredibly incompetent or did they mislead congress, or did they just simply not know. probably it's a little bit of all three. >> let's turn to suzanne kelly. the fascinating thing again today was the senators allowed in to see this video, this closed circuit television video, that included very disturbing scenes of ambassador stevens' last moments. but also, it seemed to clarify, didn't it, exactly what was going on in the buildup to this attack. there was no obvious sign, according to the senators who have come out publicly after this, of any protest. >> yeah. that's what we've been hearing from people who are in those

see this? more washington gridlock. no, it's worse -- look, our taxes are about to go up. not the taxes on our dividends though, right? that's a big part of our retirement. oh, no, it's dividends, too. the rate on our dividends would more than double. but we depend on our dividends to help pay our bills. we worked hard to save. well, the president and congress have got to work together to stop this dividend tax hike. before it's too late. to volunteer to help those in need. when a twinge of back pain surprises him. morning starts in high spirits, but there's a growing pain in his lower back. as lines grow longer, his pain continues to linger. but after a long day of helping others, he gets some helpful advice. just two aleve have the strength to keep back pain away all day. today, jason chose aleve. just two pills for all day pain relief. try aleve d for strong, all day long sinus and headache relief. try aleve d for strong, all day long try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cab

lothian, live from washington this morning. it's really nice to see you, dan. >> good to see you. >> let's first talk about the fiscal cliff. the president said we could see a deal by next week. that may hinge on this issue with taxes. how are republicans responding to the president's remarks? >> well, you know, first of all, there does seem a willingness by republicans to find areas of agreement, to reach a compromise. but they are pushing back on the president's plan because they don't believe that a solution should lie in tax hikes for any americans, including the wealthiest of americans, despite the fact that there's this looming fiscal cliff and the president has said, as you heard just a short time ago, that only middle class americans should get some ease here and not those wealthy americans from those taxes. and despite that, john boehner believes that a solution is possible. take a listen. >> i've outlined a framework for how both parties can work together to avert the fiscal cliff without raising tax rates. if you've look closely at what the president had to say and look closel
for those benefits. we earned them. and if washington tries to cram decisions about the future... of these programs into a last minute budget deal... we'll all pay the price. aarp is fighting to protect seniors with responsible... solutions that strengthen medicare and... social security for generations to come. we can do better than a last minute deal... that would hurt all of us. >>> angered by a surge in gas prices and government corruption, demonstrators in amman, jordan, burn tires and battle riot police. police responded with teargas and water cannons, fury over gas prices now around $4.25 a gallon. maybe escalating in to cries for democracy. demonstrators did something very rare. hurling insults at king abdullah. some even burned photos of the king. insulting the king is illegal and can result in a prison sentence. arwa damon joins us. is the arab spring movement taking hold now in jordan? >> reporter: well, it certainly is manifesting itself in a fairly different manner. it's important to point out that demonstrations began in jordan back in december of 2010 and the dem
that in just a minute. >>> we want to bring you in live now to washington. you see peter king there, the republican. he just exited a hearing that david petraeus was testifying in. of course, surrounding what happened in benghazi, libya. let's listen to congressman king. >> the original talking points prepared by the cia were different from the ones that were finally put out. as far as general petraeus, his testimony today was that from the start he had told us that this was a terrorist attack, terrorists involved from the start. my questions had a very different recollection of that, clear impression we were given is that the overwhelming amount of evidence is that it was -- rose out of a spontaneous demonstration and it was not a terrorist attack and pointed out the following week when matt olson said it was a terrorist attack and it made headlines because before then, the administration was saying it was not terrorists. it was very cordial, as you will. we all thanked him for his service. i think he has a different impression of the impressions he left on september 14th. >> mr. c
's when he started talking about ending politics as we know it in washington, et cetera. it's coming back to where it all began. he's landed. air force one is here. the first lady's plane has also landed at the airport. the president is greeting her at the airport, they'll arrive here together. there will be a performance from bruce springsteen and a speech here with a lot of the old campaign gang rejoining the team for a final good-bye, anderson. >> what's he doing tomorrow? we know mitt romney is having campaign events tomorrow. is the president not doing that? and why? >> you know, traditionally, first of all, he has not campaigned on election day, it's not his ritual. and he's not going to break ritual. what he'll do tomorrow is play basketball. they have this history, there was one campaign, one election day they did not play basketball. that was that primary against hillary clinton in new hampshire that he lost. and so they always say, they now play basketball every single election day, and that's their rule. >> is that for real? are they really that superstitious? >> oh, yeah. oh,
. >> he can't change washington from the inside, only from the outside. we're going to give him that chance in a day or two. >> millions of people have already voted for one candidate or the other. early voting, though, has been a blessing and a curse. in ohio, in florida, limited hours made for long lines over the weekend, could make for post-election legal battles if either state is pivotal and close. a very real possibility. there is a lot of excitement out there, though, tonight. we are just hours away from the final day of this election, of this campaign. it's up to you now, the voters, to decide. we are going to try to bring you all the excitement and energy that is out there tonight with live remarks from the presidential candidates and vice presidential candidates as they make them. tonight in the hour ahead and again when we're live at 10:00. the polling remains close enough that the romney campaign has secured two rallies for tomorrow, election day, one in cleveland, ohio. the other in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. in cleveland, you would expect, given the polling. pittsbu
getting. they deserve all of us here in washington to be thinking every single day, how can i make things a little better for them. everything we do isn't going to be perfect or that there are going to be big, tough challenges we have to grapple with, but i do know the federal government can make a difference. we're seeing it right now on the jersey coast and in new york. people are still going through a really tough time. the response hasn't been perfect. but it's been aggressive and strong and fast and robust and a lot of people have been helped because of it. and that's a pretty good metaphor for how i want the federal government to operate generally and i'm going to do everything i can to make sure it does. >> thank you, mr. president. and congratulations, by the way. >> thanks. >> one quick follow-up -- >> chris was there when i was running for state senate. >> that's right. i was. i've never seen you lose. i wasn't looking that one time. >> there you go. >> one quick follow-up and then i want to ask you about iran. i just want to make sure i understood what you said. can you envisio

story "outfront," war in washington. both sides blaming the other for a lack of action on that fiscal cliff. when taxes duoup and spending gets slashed. today, the rhetoric was ratcheted up another notch as mitch mcconnell slammed the president's plan. to raise 1.6 trillion in tax increases over the next ten years. >> an opening bid of $1.6 trillion in new taxes just isn't serious. it's more than simpson bowles or more than any other commission has called for. it's twice as much as the white house seemed ready to agree to during last summer's debt ceiling talks. a joke. >> dick durbin joins me now. good to see you. it's a joke. what do you think? >>. >> i think senator mcconnell needs to take another look at the report. i severed on that commission. a reduction of $4 trillion came from revenue. it was in the range of $1.6 trillion. >> you talk about 1.6 trillion. there's ways to get there in ways that don't necessarily raise tax rates. you could cap deductions at $35,000 and have the estate tax go back to where it was and get $1.3 million. i'm simply making the point there's a loft wa
investors see what's coming and worried that washington cannot fix it. that's why we are here again tonight. in the speeches last night and the statements today, everyone president obama and mitt romney to the leaders in the building behind me all say they get it. they understand the challenges and will rise to meet them. listen. >> we want our children to live in america that isn't burdened by debt and isn't weakened by inequality and isn't threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet. >> the nation as you know, is at a critical point. and at a time like this we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. >> if there is a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on solutions to the challenges we all face as a nation. >> it's better to dance than to fight. it's better to work together. everything doesn't have to be a fight. >> well, tonight, what is next on the fiscal cliff, on the rest of the president's agenda. on whether and how the republicans will deal with a diverse electorate. tonight we are looking forward not so much
for the update. >>> let's get to washington now, where a pretty fiery president obama ready to take off the gloves, if the republicans want to fight. the president clearly stating two key demands during his first news conference, ever since winning re-election. the first on taxes and the fiscal cliff. >> but what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford, and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> the president also making clear that he has susan rice's back. that's his ambassador, the embattled u.s. ambassador to the united nations. initially she said that that september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi began as a spontaneous protest against an anti-islam film. well, now two top-ranking republicans are vowing to block her nomination if, in fact, she is picked to be the next secretary of state. that had the president very anger. here's what he said. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> white house correspondent dan lot

in washington have trip tripped up on false intelligence in the past. people like condoleeza rice. who as national security adviser back in 2003, made the case for war in iraq, insisting that saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. >> it is time to stop the deceit and time to stop trying to deceive the world, and to offer up his weapons of mass destruction so that he can be disarmed. the overwhelming bulk of the evidence there, not about a data point here or a data point there, but about what saddam hussein was doing, was that he had weapons of mass destruction. >> right up to the end, saddam hussein continued to harbor ambitions to threaten the world with weapons of mass destruction and to hide illegal weapons activities. >> now, no nuclear weapons, no wmd ever turned up in iraq, of course. condoleezza rice went on to become secretary of state in the bush administration and back then, senator mccain and other republicans had no problem supporting her, in spite of the fact she fell for bad intelligence. >> condoleezza rice is a great american success story. this is what america
